Kiss doctored their signature tune Rock and Roll All Nite for an appearance on James Corden’s The Late Late Show.
As part of their media blitz promoting their End of the Road tour, they allowed Corden to join them and alter some of the lyrics to make them a little more age appropriate – for the host, not the members of Kiss, of course.
Inspired by British glam rockers Slade’s Cum On Feel the Noize, Rock and Roll All Nite was intended to be an anthem, and was the song that really lit Kiss’ career on fire – yet it didn’t do much initially as a single. It was when it was re-released in live form that it rocketed up the charts, capturing the band’s incredible live energy in a way that they just hadn’t managed to capture in the studio.
The Australian single release, which featured the studio version on one side and the live version on the other, climbed to number 18 in the local charts, and was the 60th best selling single for 1976.
